In this time-honored-tradition, Rear Admiral Brendan McPherson presided over the ceremony as Captain Christopher Cederholm relieved Captain Jo-Ann Burdian as the commander of Coast Guard Sector Miami. Captain Cederholm makes his move to Miami from his previous assignment as deputy sector commander at Coast Guard Sector Puget Sound. Captain Burdian will now assumer her new role as Rear Admiral at the Coast Guard Headquarters in Washington D.C. where she will serve as assistant commandant for response policy.
